Letter Home 9/13/2010

OK so the drill as you called it is this my companion is called elder Martinez he is from El Salvador. very proud of his country....not sure why but I'm still senior companion and I'm still in nueva montserrat. same area. so this week has been slow with trying to teach him the area and my old comp saying good bye to everyone and stuff. so its been slow but its been a week of change. you know me i hate change so its been kinda frustrating but i am getting used to it and stuff. but I'm not sure what else about changes that you want to hear. oh yea. so at changes they told me i was district i was like ok but whatever it cant be that hard . then they called me the next day and told me that I'm not so I'm pretty stoked that I'm not. i don't want to have to deal with the stupid people that just came into the district its going to be a lot of work. the other missionaries are not the best workers so we will see what happens with that...trying to figure out why some people are on missions.

so officially i know no one in our ward. the only guy i know is steve murphy if that is the dude who is the dad of the girl who is married with kyle willman....i forgot her name....

so i was studying the lesson for principles of the gospel and it was talking about how God answers prayers. and more often than not it is through other people. as a missionary i have been able to meet a lot of people and talk to them about the gospel and really we are those who answer prayers if we listen to the spirit and do what it says then we will meet people and be able to help those that are asking for it...i love the opportunity i have hadto be here in Guatemala and serve a misson.

hope that everything is good back home. love you

Letter to David

hey so i didn’t have changes but my comp did so i have a new companion....his name is elder martinez and he is from el salvador...its been a good week kinda slow but it will change i think...

so its super exciting that conference is coming up...i never thought of conference that way until the last conference before mission when i really tried to listen and took notes. we learn so much and really have the opportunity to learn so much. i know that if we go into conference with questions that we will receive answers. H Heavenly father always wants to help us we just have to listen and be open when the answers come. conference is awesome i just wish that i could have seen that before...i wasted so much time before my mission...there is always a better way to spend time i think that it was pres hinckley that said that everyday we need to try a little harder to be a little better. if we are better a little bit everyday than we are on the right track...

so this week we were walking down a street talking with my last comp and then this guy stoped us...he wanted to know where the church is...he wanted to go to the church and stuff..but we were struggling with finding new investigators. we are trying to find new ones but its been really was an answer to prayer that we were able to talk to this guy..but he came to church yesterday.. so I'm super excited to see what happens with this guy named Jose...

pop you are a really good dad. i know that i never really appreciated what you have done for us as a taught me a lot by example. you are a good teacher. that is how good teachers teach.. by example i want to thank you for everything that you have done. i hope its not offensive when i call you pop or old man..i just feel closer to you and want to have a realationship like a friend because that is what i consider you as. i love you and hope that you know how much. i remember when i was younger and you would come into my room and sing us to sleep. and say i love you 10 trucks...i dont know why i remember that but i do. your the best father that any one could have. thanks for putting up with me all these years. i love you.
